Great Psychological Thrillers On Netflix You Haven't Seen

  • Published: 29 September 2019
  • With its ever-expanding selection of films, Netflix has plenty of psychological thrillers that are perfect for movie night. But it's time to look beyond popular films like Bird Box and No Country for Old Men. Here are a few disturbing films you probably haven't seen ... but don't watch them alone!

    In The Good Neighbor, we immediately learn that the supposed haunting of Harold Grainey — played by James Caan — has been orchestrated by his two tech-savvy teenage neighbors, Sean and Ethan. But that doesn't make the situation any less terrifying.

    "With the proper execution, it is possible to drive an unsuspecting person into believing that they are truly being haunted."

    Sean has his reservations about the whole scheme, but Ethan is clearly on a mission. For this guy, getting the reclusive old man to believe he's being haunted is more than just a prank. The reason he's tormenting Grainey is far darker than that… and the consequences turn out to be deadly.

    Grainey handles the strange occurrences in his home surprisingly well… until Ethan escalates his efforts and pushes him over the brink. This interesting take on the found-footage genre serves as a warning about the many pitfalls of revenge.

    Simply put, The Good Neighbor is one of the most intense thrillers Netflix has to offer right now.

    Brick might not be as well known as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's other films, but there's a reason it's become a cult favorite. In this twisty mystery, Gordon-Levitt portrays Brendan Frye, a lonely teenager who recently went through a breakup with his ex-girlfriend, Emily played by Emilie de Ravin of Lost fame.

          Please apologise to every Deaf person for using such old fashioned derogatory language.. I cringed when you said Deaf and mute.. no one says that anymore and it’s offensive.. better to say non-verbal or just Deaf Medically, deafness does not necessitate muteness. Many deaf people do not speak for various reasons, or only speak in certain circumstances. They are not mute. They are capable of using their voices. They choose not to do so.

                            I can see Joker roles in Gordon Levitt's face. He can be a next great one after Jaoquin Phoenix & Heath's.

                                      Both creep movies could have been better but some of the things that happen in them are just way too unrealistic for somebody that is put in that awkward situation with a guy like that. I mean both characters in both movies acted in ways that no one else in their situation would unless there was something wrong with them and they were just that dumb, but both characters seemed pretty intelligent for the most part and yet still fell for all of his crap.

I'm sure there are some good unknown flicks, but why the FUCK would you reveal the plot twists and endings? Its like a magician reaviling the bunny before he takes off his hat.

It has a slow but interesting buildup and the further the prank goes the more enthralled you become. As the movie progresses it’s made clear that something is going to happen but it doesn’t tell you exactly what or how until it happens which is something I really appreciate in a movie.
